Wurm Press - mimeorevolution chapbooks
|Christodoulos Makris, Spitting Out the Mother Tongue|
is the chapbook imprint from Wurm Press, named after the twentieth-century changes in technology and approach that freed poets, particularly those associated with the Beat movement, to publish unusual work cheaply and quickly.
mimeorevolution #5: Kimberly Campanello, Spinning Cities, 24pp, colour cover, sold out. Kimberly's first collection Consent will be published in May 2013 by Doire Press.
Viscerally felt, personally political lyrics from a poet with a SuperSoaker. "Spinning Cities confronts the politics of division from age and gender to class and race with a measured, astute crisis of conscience. It is a relief that this confrontation does not attempt answers but only further questions, for Campanello excels at these." Isabel Galleymore, Eyewear.
Meticulously crafted soundscapes, sharply observed streetlife, no-illusions vignettes of intimacy.
"An American Serge Gainsbourg" -- Casey Scott
mimeorevolution chapbook #2: Kit Fryatt, Crude Black Strap, 16pp, b&w cover.
A sticky, turbid byproduct of the poet's narcissistic psychodrama. Sold out.
mimeorevolution chapbook #1: Karl Parkinson, A Sacrament of Song.
Karl Parkinson's rhapsodic poetry drags the reader through the Dublin streets at dawn (and a few other times of day) looking for a raphymn or a positivity manifesto. Full of fierce verbal energy, these poems celebrate ecstatic art and everyday pleasures. Sharp new straightforward writing. Karl won the Leinster Heat of the All-Ireland Poetry Slam in 2010. "Brilliantly uplifting...one of the best chapbooks' I've read in ages" -- Dave Lordan. Sold out. Karl's first collection Litany of the City will be out later this year from Wurm Press.
